Family Support Services

The Family Support Services Program (FSSP) provides funding for supports and services to families living in Greene County caring for a family member with developmental disabilities living at home with their parent, guardian or primary caregiver.  The provisions of these guidelines apply to the family, including the family member who receives reimbursement from the Family Support Services Program.

In an effort to better serve an ever increasing number of families, and continue to meet the needs of individuals and families here in Greene County, Family Support Services will no longer need to be offered on a first-come, first-served basis on the first of every month.  In an effort to streamline funding and expedite the payment for services, we continue to contract with our local Council of Governments, the Southwest Ohio Council of Governments (SWOCOG).   As a result, all services will be authorized and processed through SWOCOG.  More detailed information can be obtained through the links to the left.

The amount of funding that is available remains the same as it was in 2019, individuals eligible for GCBDD Family Support Services Program will have up to $800.00 available per calendar year. Our goal is to be able to meet the needs of even more families throughout 2020 and beyond.

As always, we thank you for your support and cooperation as we enter into a new calendar year.  Please review the information relating to the Family Support Services Program to the left. You may contact the SWOCOG, or GCBDD with any questions via the information below. We look forward to working with you in the future.
